Christians Against Filibusters

Check out this TV ad by People for the American Way. Their reason for the ad:

In just two days, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist will appear with the Radical Religious Right’s James Dobson and Tony Perkins in a telecast to churches nationwide. The “Justice Sunday” event will enlist their followers in Frist’s fight to eliminate the Senate filibuster...the last, best check on one-party domination.

They’re calling it “Filibuster Against the Faithful.” It’s a shameful attempt to manipulate religion for political gain, and to suggest that anybody who doesn’t share their political point of view can’t be a person of faith.

It’s an outrage. It must not go unanswered...

Read the entire explanation and maybe contribute a few $'s to help air it this weekend.
